Los Angeles, CA (February 22, 2009)

Platinum jewelry ruled the red carpet at the 81st Academy Awards and after-parties around the city. Jewelry and style expert Michael OConnor – who helped celebrities find the perfect baubles for tonights festivities notes that classic elegance is back. Movie stars are foregoing over-the-top bling and instead selecting one or two statement pieces of classic Platinum jewelry that stand the test of time. Drop and stud earrings, ornate cuff bracelets, hair brooches and statement necklaces set in Platinum were the most popular choices of the evening. Platinum is the most favored metal on the red carpet because its naturally white, so it maximizes the brilliance of gemstones.
